    Stand Up Comedy Thread

    Just thought I'd spread some laughs and hopefully see some of yours. I thought this thread could be akin to the 'What are you listening to' thread. One of my current recent stand up comedians is a guy I've only just discovered. Aries Spears , a funny guy and a great impressionist

    Doom and Horror

    This IS what makes most horror games so 'Edge of your seat'. The fear of death and having to possibly go back and do over 10-15 mins of work. This was the fundamental thing that made Alien Isolation terrifying coupled with an atmosphere of pure dread. It had an old school save system. When you can just save at every corner that fear is gone because it doesn't matter what is lurking around that corner as you can just re-load and try again and again. So yes , this system forces you to be careful and look after your health.

    Final Doom-PSX: Thoughts and Opinions

    Oh no doubt! Link cable PSX Doom was a blast though.
  9. I've just finished Final Doom on the PSX for the first time and i gotta say what a wicked challenge it was. First of all I will say that I'm not the greatest Doom player in the world by a long shot what I consider challenging , lots of you will not. I was surprised to find out shortly before starting this version that its actually split into three parts that include: Master Levels for Doom II ,TNT and Plutonia. All of which are consolidated into 30 levels nearly half of which are from the Master Levels then there are good few from TNT and only SIX from Plutonia. From what I gather from the PC version is that TNT and Plutonia are both 32 levels each which would give Final Doom its own flavour , so I find it a bit strange that this release seems to mostly ignore that concept. I wonder why they made this decision? The game runs pretty well on the PSX , mostly. There is some terrible frame rate drops in wide open areas which slows everything down(not as bad as the Sega Saturn version of Doom mind) and can actually make it very hard on the eyes. I don't remember Doom on Playstation having this issue though it has been a very long time since i played that version so it may well have , I'm sure someone here will know. I enjoyed the level layouts , especially in the plutonia portion of the game which is no doubt the highlight here but unfortunately again, theres only six of them. I found the master levels and TNT to all seem to be of a very brown texture , I know that sounds odd but lots of these levels just seemed.....brown. The soundtrack was just awesome! Aubrey Hodges did a fine job here and I prefer these tracks over the original Doom and Doom II MIDI tracks. I found this game HARD , sorry I just did. Controlling the movement with the D-pad and strafing with L1 and R1 may very well have added to this. One great feature though was that the game allowed you to completely Re-map all of the button controls. (Quite unusual I believe for a game that came out in '96) Which was a godsend as the default fire button was triangle I think which is really weird , so i did manage try and get it pretty close to Xbox controls but still without analogue stick support it was awkward. There is no memory card support just good old fashioned passwords which means no save spamming and if you die, its back to the password screen again. The standout level for me was one called 'Heck' , brilliantly implemented and evil map which I died on , lots. Overall I did enjoy it though I think I might seek out the full Final Doom experience next time. Have you fine folks played this version? If so what did you think?

    Doom and Horror

    I'm currently playing Doom64 for the first time and I gotta say the music in this this game is pretty disturbing at times, there's some very strange noises and effects thrown in there. as for Doom 64 and Doom PSX The key to these 'Horror' type Doom's is in my opinion directly down to the music It does give the games a huge sense of it being a horror. But does it make it Horror? mmmmmmm I'm not sure on that. Imagine playing Doom 64 with the classic MIDI style music instead, I reckon it would take a ton of that horror atmosphere away. Doom 3 on the other hand is a completely different beast. The look and feel was clearly designed with a more of a horror approach in mind from the get go.

    Awesome Games Done Quick 2018 - LIVE Now!

    I've hardly had a chance to watch at all this week. Gonna catch up on some of the runs. I expect Resi 7 to have been a treat , Carci is a brilliant speedrunner of the series. 2.2 million for charity is fantastic , funny how you don't hear about this in the media. But then again the concept of video games and the gamers who play them doing something truly beautiful for world isn't something they like to promote is it.

    Final Doom-PSX: Thoughts and Opinions

    Its interesting to see how different players set up their buttons for consoles. I had mine set like this: L1 -Strafe Left R1- Strafe Right L2- Run R2- fire X- Use Square - Hold strafe , Like you I didn't use this once. Circle - Cycle weapons right Triangle - Cycle weapons left Also , Interesting read about 'Homage' , it clearly exists in some form for the PSX version. Would make I nice piece in a collection if anyone found it.

    Final Doom-PSX: Thoughts and Opinions

    Ahhh thank you , that will be on my list for the future then. As for the Ballistyx second exit , I don't recall seeing it but I'd bet you wasn't the only one who thought this. Even on the back of the case for the game it states TNT and Plutonia having 32 levels each which leads me to believe that it's probably just a copy and paste of the PC packaging.

    I did say it was only a guess.

    D3 running bad on new laptop

    It might be a compatibility issue somewhere. Possibly somewhere in the registry. This is only a guess by the way, but it has been known for some applications that pre-date Windows 10 to not recognise Windows 10 functions if that makes sense. And it causes havoc

    Final Doom-PSX: Thoughts and Opinions

    A bargain bin??? Ha! you'd be hard pushed to find it in something like that these days , I had to really hunt a decent copy down. I played the original Doom on PSX - which is actually where i got my start playing the series and like you said , I don't remember the slowdown as much on that game. you mentioned playing it on a smaller screen which is something I had to do. I started playing it on my 42" LCD but the resolution coupled with the frame rate at times was too much and I had to switch to an old 19'' monitor , which helped. I've heard that theres Doom classic complete on PS3 , does that include the full PC episodes of TNT and Plutonia? May have to look into getting that if it does.
